Koshinohomare Shiboritate Junmai Nama Genshu SE02 "Pride of Niigata"

Four Hot Words: Full-Bodied, Dry, Smooth, & Food-friendly

The nose on this seasonally released “raw” or unpasteurized sake is a calm collection of plum, melon, peach, and floral aromas. Bingo! This year’s Junmai Genshu has a wonderful feeling and flavor combination and would speak to any sake drinker looking to tastes just brewed sake. Fresh and a little chippy it reminds the drinker that you are enjoying flavors such as apple, grape, and mango in 3D as this sake is not heated to preserve it. Smooth yet vast there is a very expansive action with each sip that brashly but not brutally sways the palate. It is fruit forward indeed, but there is also a gentle sweet rice richness that makes the brew drink with more expression. A very tasty performance this year! WORD: Expressive WINE: Round Reds/ Fruity whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Very food friendly focusing on elegant savory flavors, grilled bits, fresh seafood, and some international spice.(2017)


This seasonally released sake is as fresh as fresh can be and has a nose filled with cooked rice, sweet nut, and banana crème brulee elements. Hello! Are you looking for a different flavored sake that is super tasty and super unique? Well look no further as this year’s version doesn’t taste like last year’s breakfast cereal bar, but rather it has a killer crème brulee attitude! Rich and vivid this unpasteurized sake is chewy, fat and very full-bodied. I wrote “round, ricy, and yummy” in my notes and I think that about does it! It is semi-sweet, but boarders more on rich sweet that is complex but very enjoyable. Round and expressive this brew makes for a great meal in a glass sake, and don’t let the 17%-18% alcohol fool you because you can’t even notice it with all of the fun flavors bouncing around. WORD: Crème Brulee WINE: Rich Reds/ Fat Whites BEER: Belgian Ales FOODS: The kitchen sink! SMV: +4 Acidity: 1.6 (2016)

Prefecture: Niigata
